D800 video question

What is the cheapest way to use an external mic on a D800 and get decent sounds without any hiss?

I am happy with the internal mic so that will give you an idea of what quality I need (nothing professional here, just personal work)

but I would like the sounds to be captured more directional (family interviews) and use an external mic.

Is it a matter of some settings in the camera to give decent sound or do I need to get pre amps and amps and other things to get better audio?
